RCMP identify suspects after car driven off Nova Scotia wharf

Nova Scotia RCMP have identified suspects as they investigate an incident that saw a man drive a vehicle off a wharf in small-town Nova Scotia this weekend.

Police say that shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday a small red vehicle was driven off a wharf in Cape Saint Mary’s, N.S.

A call was placed to the RCMP soon afterward, reporting the crash as a possible fatal collision.

Officers responded to the scene before calling in additional units, including the RCMP’s underwater recovery team and a collision reconstructionist.

Investigators became aware that the incident was not an accident and appeared to be a stunt after a video began circulating on social media.

In the video, the driver of the vehicle can be seen wearing a helmet and a personal flotation device before eventually driving the small red car off the end of the wharf.

The person surfaces once the vehicle crashes into the water and can be heard cheering with onlookers.

On Sunday, RCMP divers checked the vehicle to make sure that no one else was inside. The underwater recovery team also assisted a towing company that helped remove the vehicle from the water.
